Fridge Inventory

Now old foodstuffs aren't out of sight and out of mind.

Upon the purchase of groceries, one scans them on a barcode reader. Using this barcode, an inventory of foods in the fridge is created-- and displayed on an LCD screen on the door. This screen will tell you name, quantity, and age-- so perfectly good foods that've been lost to the fridge's nether depths aren't ignored and fossilized 'leftovers' aren't ingested. Thanks.

The Competition http://www.halfbake...om/idea/AI_20Fridge
It forms relationsips a_n_d fungus - doesn't follow the same exact tact as this idea [thumbwax, Jul 23 2002]

After flying cars, this is probably the most over-subscribed idea on the Internet. [DrCurry, Jul 23 2002]

       Actually, this croissant-in-the-making is specifically to /prevent/ doctors from discovering life-saving fungii in the casserole. It occurs to me that on unbarcoded fruits and veggies, should this be accepted, that barcodes could be issued by the cashier-- they could be printed out with the receipt.

       Baked by some guy in the Netherlands, who posts his fridge on the Web. Can't find a link.

       In the not too distant future, when we all have barcodes tattooed on the inside of our wrists, the incidence of 'Fridge Rage' would rise to epidemic proportions.
